Sorry for being MIA! I’ve been busy in Berlin, not doing any touristy stuff, surprisingly. One of the reasons why I’m traveling and in Berlin for 2 weeks is because I am here to be reunited with two of my best friends from high school back in Cambodia! I’ve been staying with my lovely friend and host, Milena who I haven’t seen in 4 years and Xenia, who I haven’t seen in 2 years, flew from London so all three of us can have a massive sleepover :P It’s been 6+ years since all of us have been in the same place at the same time so you can imagine how much catching up we have to do.
Although it’s been more than 6 years, being reunited doesn’t feel strange or awkward at all. In fact, it’s so normal that Xenia came over and took a nap right away without even having time to talk (she came in on an early flight). So, we’ve been hanging out and spending our days talking nonstop for hours, cooking and having fun. Although, we are clearly not 16 year olds anymore since none of us can barely stay up past midnight and we haven’t really had any night outs! Haha.
I guess we’ll just carry on drinking coffee and eating, spending all day in the kitchen, chatting away. So awesome to see everyone and how much everyone’s lives have changed. We are still the same old 16 year olds at heart though (not physically, clearly) and it’s just awesome to have my girlfriends next to me again. Although we have to go our separate ways back to reality again soon, it definitely reenergized me and made me happy to know that I always have friends to fall back to if I ever needed help. Love you both! <3
